I think I eat most of the time pretty well. I eat regularly and my diet is versatile. I don't count calories, instead I try to listen to my body and its needs.

Pregnancy has definitely changed my diet because now I consume a lot more dairy foods. Before I tried to avoid them because they made me bloated. Now for some reason my body reacts differently for them and actually I have been craving a lot of milk, cheese and yogurt. I also have had a lot more cheat meals than usual even though I have tried to eat healthy. But when I eat normally this is basically what my diet contains:

Breakfast

Porridge is my go to breakfast and I have been loving it. It keeps me full for hours and it is easy and fast to make. Usually I eat berries with it. And to get some protein I usually have a boiled egg or 2 egg whites on the side.

Lunch

My lunch contains of meat (usually chicken), pasta, rice or potatoes and vegetables or a salad. I try to have it so that half of my plate is filled with vegetables/salad, ¼ carbs and ¼ meat/other source of protein. I also drink a glass of milk at lunch.

Snack

For snack I have a fruit and/or nuts. For example I could eat one apple and about 30g of nuts. I love cashews and almonds so I like to mix those two.

Dinner

Dinner is exactly like my lunch. Sometimes I like to change one of these meals for a salad, but then I make sure it contains a lot of protein and also enough carbs. If I have a salad, I might have a small bread on the side.

Snack

About 1-2 hours before going to bed I eat an evening snack. Otherwise I would woke up in the middle of the night for hunger. My snack is a lot bigger than it used to be before pregnancy and might be too much for someone who is not pregnant.

I eat two pieces of bread, usually ryebread. On the top I have margarin, sliced meat or cheese, salad leaf and cucumber. If I feel hungry or I only have one bread, I like to also have a yogurt. It is also something I have been craving a lot now that I am pregnant.

Water intake

I try to drink at least 2,5 litres a day. In good days I drink about 3 litres of water. When I drink a lot of water I have to pee all the time, but it's worth it. Water helps me with bloating and digestion. (If you didn't know, pregnancy causes some digestive problems that are not fun.)

Supplements/vitamins

Every morning I take my prenatal vitamin. Every now and then I also take some extra c-vitamin and magnesium. Now that I am on my third trimester I don't take my omega-3 supplement anymore. Reason for that is, they can increase hemorrhage. And now I am closer to having birth so I don't really want to bleed any extra.


If you are interested in nutrition I have made two articles about it before. They are not pregnancy related but there are some good overall tips for everyone.

Thanks for reading. ♡
